2016 Paychecks for Patriots
The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the Florida National Guard, and the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs will be again holding the annual statewide hiring event for veterans and military families – Paychecks for Patriots. This year, Paychecks for Patriots will be held during the week of Veterans Day, November 7-11, 2016.
In an effort to address the employment needs of service members and veterans across the state, the annual Paychecks for Patriots event works to bring employers with current position openings in Florida to the table with great military and veteran candidates.
Paychecks for Patriots hiring fairs are hosted by the CareerSource Florida network regional boards. This year, the event will be held for an entire week to help as many veterans as possible.
Paychecks for Patriots has made a difference in the lives and careers of more than 1,700 veterans and military families in the past three years, and we expect the fourth year to continue that tradition so Florida can continue to be the most military- and veteran-friendly state in the nation.
